Remember the most exhilarating time you’ve ever had, with the most enchanting
company, in the most memorable of places...
that time magnified; then you’ll have some idea
of what to expect in Trinidad and Tobago.
This most southerly
destination in the Caribbean chain of islands fulfils all your expectations
of the all-in-one exotic getaway. Trinidad,
in its ability to turn any event into a fete, will keep you on the go
at a steady pace from all-inclusive parties, to beach outings (limes),
to rainforest hikes. Tobago, the smaller of the two, with its life-in-the-tropics
allure, offers palm-fringed beaches and tropical breezes for a mellowing
effect. But so easygoing — and
diverse — is the makeup of both Trinidad and Tobago, your vacation
can be whatsoever you choose to make of it.
If you’re looking for sun-and-sea siestas, or more sporty surfing
and diving action, the beach options in both islands are several. Festivals
abound in this country; just time your visit right and you can be part
of the raving Trinidad Carnival or the traditions of the Tobago Heritage
Festival — just to name two. And at any time of year, nightlife
is always alive! Local theatre, fine dining and art galleries provide
more subdued entertainment.
